The issue I have about people bitching about people reselling things that are free or are for profit on ebay is that someone somewhere is willing to pay for it. Therefore what is wrong with that in a free market?

Its the same thing with collectors editions or swag people schwag gotten at events. If people are willing to pay for it I dont have an issue with it.

UNLESS ITS SOMETHING I WANTED AND MISSED OUT ON. YOU F*CKING ASSHOLES.

Once these codes are gone, I'm sure someone who missed it and wants the DLC enough would be happy to pay $5 for it on ebay.

Its pretty douchey since these are limited to so few, but so are a lot of things.

Look at the IGN PS+ codes thing, people jumped all over that. I missed out on that as I was at work, but I gladly paid $1.50 a month for a years worth of codes from people.


If the reseller is selling multiple codes that's multiple codes that multiple people will be missing out on. If people are already happy to pay a bit for the DLC why not just pay a bit extra and support Gearbox themselves? "The issue I have about people bitching about people reselling things that are free or are for profit on ebay is that someone somewhere is willing to pay for it." if only everyone followed this type of logic then I could just go on eBay and buy myself a stripper friend :(

the OP needs to delete that sd link as the OP there credited it to the CAG that posted in the freebies forums


I have updated to credit the original poster from the other forum on this site, so hopefully things are good now. If not, let me know if there is something else that needs to be done. I will do it.

Again, I saw a deal that I knew others would want to know about and that I didn't want them to miss out on. This thread was not intended whatsoever to be oneupsmanship and to steal credit from Tiger for spotting said deal in the first place. It's nice to know that there are members out there who actually reported me for posting about something that originally appeared in a thread on a forum of the site that I do not frequent and knew nothing about. Very Christmas-like, and it will make me think twice about posting deals here again. Crimany...

Ignore them, you just saved me and numerous others 10$. I know I would not have checked the Free section of the forum before this ended, and I know in the past I have missed out due to similar reasons.

So i give you a heartfelt thank you.

Don't have a big problem with resellers. It's just funny that how some will leech off well intentioned promos whenever they can to make a few dollars profit. One's karma should worth more than that.

Hence, lol @ those appearing on eBay already.


I think that is the key phrase for me. Someone at Comcast (which in itself is kinda shocking) put together a pretty cool and well intentioned promo that certainly wasn't free on their side. So to take take advantage of that promo is a pretty scummy move in my opinion. But oh well, nothing I can do about it.

What? I don't think anyone is out to get you for creating a thread in the deals section, someone else would've done it sooner or later. Plenty of people only check the DEALS thread anyway. No reason for people to report you.

I would like to express the same gratitude. BL2 is me and the wife's favorite game of all time, and now it just got better.

Nice find, OP! Redeemed an Xbox code succesfully... now I guess it's time to buy a copy of Borderlands 2, or maybe finish the prequel first...! :bouncy:

I still think its the people doing the promo's responsibility to limit how many codes can be had. Using FB and twitter is the wrong way to do these types of promos since they're easily exploitable. The ideal way would be to at least make it more difficult and limit to one per IP, but that would take more work to do.

I didn't report you. I know there are members that go ape shit when someone posts a "non deal" ie not an actual sale or promo from a retailer or a repost. Then they post those stupid meme pics until a mod deltes the entire thread
Only issue I had was that you linked SD when that person, albeit giving credit, merely copy pasted Tiger's entire post.

The thread in the freebies forums:

Xfinity (the company running this promo) should have first sent it to people who are customers. No idea how many codes they are giving away but has to be at least 6000 (assuming at least 2k per console). That's a bit big and possibly expensive for this company. Also even if there were ip limits, people would still exploit to death.
I recall someone bragging how they'd get a code (some xbl giveaway) every minute or so by tethering their phone so a new ip every time.

When you go to a conference or seminar, the refreshments and gifts are just placed on a table unguarded. The organizers generally assume the attendees have the decency to take one per person.

Not saying our society should be utopian, but the degree of degeneration of basic human decency is sad.

I like to think that only a select few and trying to take advantage of the deal, and the vast majority are still using this deal as intended.

That being said, the codes are starting to pop up on the trade thread here as well haha.
